Michael McGoldrick & Family Band is a captivating musical ensemble that showcases the immense talent and rich heritage of the McGoldrick family. Led by Michael on the uilleann pipes/flute, the band also features Catherine on the Wooden flute, Ciara on the concertina & vocals, and Mairead on the Bodhran/tin whistle. The music played by the McGoldrick Family Band has been lovingly passed down through generations, originating from their own grandfather Brendan McGoldrick, a skilled Tin whistle player from Co Galway.
Catherine and Ciara, both accomplished musicians in their own right, further honed their skills by pursuing degrees at the prestigious Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, whilst Mairead brings her exceptional talent as an All-Ireland Bodhran champion to the mix.. Their music is a testament to the enduring power of family, tradition, and the universal language of music. They will be joined by Jimmy Patrick on guitar. Jimmy studied music at Newcastle University and has since travelled the world picking up a range of international guitar techniques.
